How to use bamboo rest api method /admin/users/rename

I want to change a username in Bamboo 6.8.1 via rest api but I can't figure out how to use the method /admin/users/rename.


curl -s -X PUT -u admin:password -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"name": "willow"}' http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/admin/users/rename?filter=buffy

says the user does not exist.
